Pinocchio
December 2018
Featuring a cast of young actors (ranging from 12 to 21 years of age), our updated version of Pinocchio was set in a school with lots of colourful characters including magical mermaids, dancing crickets, Geppetto the woodwork teacher, the Blue Fairy and the not very nice Fox and Cat, the school prefects.
